World AIDS Day 2021
World AIDS Day is commemorated each year on the 1st of December and is an opportunity for every community to unite in the fight against HIV, show support for people living with HIV and remember those who have died.
Former President Nelson Mandela said: “Many people suffering from AIDS and not killed by the disease itself are killed by the stigma surrounding everybody who has HIV and AIDS.”
Let’s take action and act against the discrimination against people with HIV or TB and protect everyone’s human rights; avoid spreading false information about COVID-19 or HIV as this may perpetuate stigma and discrimination.
